In this paper we present a new technique for a fiber-based temporal super resolving system allowing to improve the resolution of a temporal imaging system. The proposed super resolving concept is based upon translating the field of view multiplexing method that is used to increase resolution in spatial imaging systems from the spatial domain to the temporal domain. In this paper, an optical realization of our proposed system is presented, using optical fibers and electro-optic modulators. In addition, we show how one can apply this method using low-rate electronics for the required modulation. We also show simulation results that demonstrate the high resolution accepted in our method compares to the basic temporal imaging system. Experimental results which demonstrate resolution improvement by a factor of 1.5 based on the proposed method are presented together with an additional experiment that shows the ability to generate the desired modulation with low rate electronics.
